We are all aware of the serious financial problems western nations face, especially here in the U.S. of A -- debt ceilings, quantitative easing, Soros
put options. All signs point to a major meltdown that will make the Great Depression look like a walk through Disney Land. The doom and gloom of "The
Great Collapse" has been proselytized by many well respected experts who see it as a forgone conclusion, not an "if" but a "when". I too believed
that the house of cards would eventually come crumbling down in one great, fell swoop. That one day all the dollars in my bank would be gone, and I
would be reduced to the silver bits stored in the safe in my closet. I don't believe this anymore, that is not to say that the economy is good and
getting better, or that greener pastures lie ahead. Quite the contrary, I see a steady decline on the horizon, a prolonged destruction of the middle
class, but by the time that occurs we will all be dead and buried, and the future generation will have no remembrance of what the past was like when
the average Joe & Joanne could provide a house with a yard for their family, food in the fridge and a car in the garage. Those memories are already
beginning to slip.
Now certainly there are those who will vehemently disagree, with plenty of facts, tables and statistics to back up the experts' claims that yes
indeed the "Global Meltdown" is coming, and unless you have plenty of gold, guns, and storable food than there's no hope for survival. But then I
ask who benefits? How is a global financial meltdown beneficial to those who currently hold power, to the rulers of the world who have controlled the
purse strings for centuries? Why would they allow all they've worked so hard for to slip through their fingers. "They" wouldn't.
"They", the powers that be, the global elite, call them what you will, but They have us right were they want us -- divided, bickering, petty,
worshipping false idols on tv, and ultimately complacent. No matter what revelations comes to pass, whether it's NSA spying or illegal wars, we
don't lift a finger to do anything about it. Some try, raise their voices and make a stink, blow the whistle, but at the end of the day nothing
happens, and the majority is okay with that. Our government is openly corrupt, bankers are stealing our wealth, oh well. Nothing is done. Why oh why
would They want to change the status quo? Everything seems to be working out just fine.
What would happen in the event of a global financial meltdown? Chaos. And here's the thing with chaos, the outcome is unpredictable. If America goes
the way of the Weimar Republic then there's going to be some serious regime change happening here at home, and Soros is going to find the Bubba
Liberation Front knocking on his front door with an AR and a death warrant, same goes for the globalist goons on Wall Street and their cronies in
Washington. The one-percenters know this. History has proven that They are cold and calculating, spending decades, sometimes the better part of a
century to achieve their goals (see the EU). Why risk the quick finish over the slow burn? Chaos may beget more power, but could ultimately lead to
destruction, that's a gamble I don't think any of them are willing to make.
It is my belief that the "Global Collapse" is not a fear, but a pipe-dream, similar to Tyler Durden in Fight Club bringing down all the financial
institutions to reset everyone back to zero. No more personal debt, no more slavery to the banks. We want the system to come crashing down so we can
retake it for ourselves. We revel in the doom-porn, scoff at stock prices while counting our survival supplies, waiting. The bills are piling up but
maybe, just maybe, tomorrow I won't have to pay them because the whole world has come crashing down. They will never allow this to happen. Life will
go on, it will trudge ahead into further poverty and decay at a pace that no one will really notice until it's too late. And by then, everything we
know will be forgotten, our civilization will be looked back upon as a modern Sodom and Gomorrah, a cautionary tale to the future downtrodden that
freedom and self-reliance is unsustainable.
Mods: I know this could be classified as a Rant, or be placed in Skunk Works since it's an opinion piece, but I opted to poke the bear by dropping it
in the Global Meltdown forum -- move if necessary.
